As is typical of many weddings, the planning drags, and so does the movie.

With barely a laugh to be found, Confetti takes the 'mock' right out of the mockumentary.

A British import that proves how dangerous improvisation can be when not handled with proper care.

Cute and exasperating and, in the end, not nearly lunatic enough; it's a Christopher Guest movie without the fangs.

Remember the "Stonehenge" joke in This Is Spinal Tap? Imagine that joke, or something similar, stretched all the way out to the edges of a 100-minute movie, so thin that it's transparent.

I'm sure there are reality show creators who are kicking themselves for not thinking of this idea first.

'Confetti' does not come remotely close to its predecessors in terms of clever satire or witty dialogue.

Overall, Confetti is agreeable and appropriately daft, though occasionally tepid and contrived.

The humor is sweet-spirited, the dialogue (all improvised by the cast) is acerbic and witty, the celebration of unbridled tackiness is often hilarious.

Confetti fires off the occasional good line, but it mostly just beats its jokes to within an inch of their very short lives.

The climactic scenes possess an irresistible charm, as each wedding turns out to be just perfect.

It gradually becomes clear that Confetti is funny because it views its flawed, crazy characters with real affection.

...doesn't have a whole lot to offer in terms of laughs or even character development...

There's an affectionate tone to Confetti that makes it a serviceable time-waster.

The savvy British actors sweating for our amusement in Debbie Isitt's comedy, a fairly funny mockumentary-style lark about a magazine-sponsored wedding competition, fare better than their self-generated material.

Confetti has an innate sweetness -- especially when it comes to Archibald and Gregory, the most endearing of all the twosomes.

[Confetti] has a few great lines and a knack for sweeping you off your feet with surprisingly intimate romantic moments.

The TV-flat production makes it easier to laugh at the obvious jokes, while the cast's spot-on timing makes the subtler humor shine even brighter.

A three-ring circus of throttled emotion.
